In a dramatic ending the Lazy Daisy Ranchers staged a comeback and held on to win over the Chicago Black Sox 6 by the count of 3 to 2.

Lazy Daisy won the game with a rally in the top of the 9th inning scoring 2 runs utilizing 4 base hits. After two were out Pinky Whitney began the Lazy Daisy spurt when he doubled. Sam Crawford was next to the plate and he tripled driving in a run. Manny Sanguillen then singled scoring the final run of the inning. Lazy Daisy managed 9 hits in their victory.

Billy Pierce(6-10) picked up the victory, allowing 2 runs in 8 innings. Goose Gossage earned the save, his 10th. Joe Horlen(12-8) was the losing pitcher.

Kid Gleason was not very talkative after his team's tough loss. 'I'm not in the mood for questions, but I'm sure Delivery Boy will be glad to talk about the game as long as you have questions to ask.'
